Additional Details

Asa Matlack (1783-1851) was an antiquarian with a particular interest in the Quaker history of Burlington County, NJ. This notebook includes notes on genealogy, land records, and more. A few entries describe his own family life and research efforts. In two places, his grandson Asa M. Stackhouse (1845-1916) has added signed notes. Haverford College holds a small collection of the family's related notebooks.
